I’ve been enjoying AICN’s “Behind the Scenes Picture of the Day” series, and for obvious reasons, I really dug this one:
I also see that the official release date for the Star Wars films on Blu-ray has been announced. I won’t be acquiring these right off the bat, unless the current DVD player at Casa Jaquandor goes belly-up between this day and that. I’m not upgrading to Blu-ray until I absolutely have to; I still don’t see any compelling need whatsoever for this new format other than Sony saying, “Holy crap, we need one last physical format to soak everybody with before everything is all-digital-download!”
And I’m amused, of course, by the huge chorus of people shouting “I’m not giving George Lucas any more of my money!”, as if he’s the one and only filmmaker releasing films successively in one format and then the next and then the next.
